Long time client’s daughter is battling for her life with Stage 4 kidney disease and is in need of a new kidney. Any help or professional insight would be much appreciated.

Jo’s website has links and lots of information: www.hero4jo.com.

www.kidneyregistry.org has lots of information about donation and about the voucher program.

Key facts:
– Surgery for donors is laparoscopic.
– Average hospital stay is 2 days (for the donor).
– Kidneys travel not the donor or recipient.
– Most people resume work after 2 weeks, unless their work is physical labor.
– If your remaining kidney has some problem, you go to the top of the top of the transplant list.
– There is no medical cost to the donor and there is reimbursement for lost wages or travel expenses to the transplant site.
